ASU professor says Neuralink's new brain implant technology has a lot of potential

Elon Musk recently announced his company Neuralink had implanted its device in a human brain for the first time.

At its heart, the device aims to allow users to take actions only through their thoughts. Musk has touted the ability to control a phone or computer by just thinking about doing something on them.

Bradley Gregor says this is a very exciting technology, and that it has a lot of potential. Greger is a professor in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering at Arizona State University.

He joined The Show to discuss how this device relates to the work he's doing.
